    I took the 70" osage out this morning and flight shot it. Not competitive for world records but a very good shooter. Shortest shot 210 yds longest shot 215 yds. No wind. I think I will stay with the 70" for a few more bows and do a better job of avoiding set. The bow is close enough that I can see where the little bit of set I got cost me. I love the way the longer bows shoot, smooth as silk. I seem to be creeping up in length about 1" a year for my favorite bows. I am going to designate this bow as my 3-d shooter for the time being. Current self bow broadhead record is 221 yards with a 500 grain arrow. We lowered the arrow weight to 450 grains so I am looking for 235 yards minimum. I shot the current record with a little wind behind me which can easily add 5 or 10 yards if the arrow is following it right.

The bow I'm hunting with this year is 68 in. It's the longest bow that I have ever hunted with but like the extra length for smoothness & accuracy , it's easier for me to pull more weight with the longer smooth drawing less stacking longer bows they are fun to shoot and hold reflex well !
If you fear failure you will never Try !
